Sunday Sermons can be very convicting, inspiring and compelling. Like many others, you may have experienced the urge to act, but you’ve been left with more questions than answers:

How do I get involved past Sundays at Grace? What does it mean to live ‘on mission’? What does that look like for you? How can I get connected with people or into a Community Group? Whether you’re new to the area, the church or following Jesus, you won’t want to miss Next Steps where we answer those burning questions.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view in a safe environment.

We'll examine the importance of worldview along the way as we unpack the greatest story of all time and discuss how your story intersects with HIStory. Are you exploring Christianity and have questions? Are you a new believer and want to start with a solid foundation? Are you wondering how to share your faith with someone? All are welcome! People in our culture are craving purpose. They are desperately looking for their place in a story. Come learn of the greatest story there is—the Story of God, and how He has pursued and redeemed humanity (including you and me) through the work of His son, Jesus.

Today, parents feel the pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" kids, and it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents.

Kids don’t need the latest parenting strategy, they need the rescuing grace of God, the same grace their parents need too. Freed from the burden of trying to be the Holy Spirit for our kids, we can embrace parenting God's way and trust Him to work in their lives through us.
